Largest Solar Flare of Cycle 24
Three M-Flares including an M6.4 has taken place around Sunspot 1045. The flare at 03:19 UTC Sunday is the largest solar flare of Cycle 24 thus far. Any earth directed explosions could trigger geomagnetic storming. The latest blast has triggered an R2 Radio blackout which could temporarily degrade HF communications on the sunlit side. More to come.
